Dorothy Edwards Scholarship & Internship

Dorothy Edwards was a teacher at ARC from 1960 to 1975, in the former Office Administration Department. Dorothy was a dedicated instructor with a sincere interest in her students. As a result of her desire to perpetuate that dedication and interest, she arranged to bequeath a major portion of her personal estate to American River College to provide scholarships.
